Moore talks Opening regional and summer plans

Kennewick (Wash.) Kamiakin defensive back Darreon Moore talks with eDuck about what's in store for him before his junior season and his time in Eugene at The Opening regional camp

Kennewick (Wash.) Kamiakin defensive back Darreon Moore has been getting his fill of green and yellow over the past few days. Currently in Eugene for a camp at the University of Oregon, the 2017 prospect was also in town on Sunday for The Opening regional camp.

Moore told eDuck he enjoyed competing against some of the best players in the area.

“I felt I did good competing against some of the top athletes in the region,” he said.

Moore received some solid feedback at the camp, and said he’ll be focusing on improving his footwork and off coverage over the summer. During the camp this week, he said he’s looking forward to learning from the Ducks coaching staff and hopes to impress with his skill set. Oregon is a program he is certainly intrigued by.

“I just like on both sides of the ball it’s all speed, speed, speed,” he said. “I feel like I have an advantage with the speed that I have and it’ll help me fit in with the system.”

Other programs that Moore wants to hear from include USC and Arizona State. So far he’s receiving interest from both Washington and Washington State.

Looking farther ahead into the future, Moore wants to take his time with his recruitment and doesn’t want to make a hasty decision, but did say he hopes to stay on the West Coast. His only plans for now are on improving his game and discussed his plans for the offseason.

“I’m going to be in the weight room,” he said. “Then getting the team together since we have a new system going on, so working with that over the summer.”
